hmm. I'm not sure I get what do you mean by device storage.. I put sim
into router
board, send an SMS and wait a while. I cannot read it back with `uqmi` when I
start smstools, can see SMS in `/var/spool/sms` fetched by `smstools`.
So It was
non-read too.

It seems stupid, but can it be because SMS on my network are PDP encoded?

BTW, It's procedure I'm following:

# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --verify-pin1 <pin>
# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --network-register
# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --get-serving-system
  "registration": "registered",
  "roaming": "false",
# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --list-messages

# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --get-current-settings
"Out of call"
# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --set-client-id wms,$(uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0
--get-client-id wms) --get-current-settings
"Out of call"
# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --start-network --apn internet --autoconnect
# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --get-data-status
# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0  --get-current-settings
        "pdp-type": "ipv4",
        "ip-family": "ipv4",
        "mtu": 1500,
        "ipv4": {
        "ipv6": {

        "domain-names": {

# uqmi -d /dev/cdc-wdm0  --list-messages


I had doubt about that `Out of call` status, so connected to 3G too
see how much It can be problem :)
